Home Prospective Parents Introduction


Choosing a secondary school is one of the most important decisions you make with your child. At Moorside High School you can expect your child to receive an excellent education in a safe and caring environment where all people are valued.

Our aim is to provide nothing but the best for each of our pupils so all can experience success, make positive contributions to the school community and go on to become responsible, independent members of society. Their achievements are our reward.

We know that hard work in a calm and supportive atmosphere is the key to success, so we are strong on discipline and have high expectations of pupils, staff and of our parents too.

We work very hard to make sure that everyone has the chance to achieve to the best of their ability and that behaviour is of the highest standard. Courtesy, good manners and appropriateness of dress are demanded at Moorside High School. We expect all pupils to conduct themselves with dignity and show consideration to others, whether in or out of school.

Moorside High School is a warm and friendly place to learn, where, with the help and encouragement of our staff and with the support of their parents pupils can develop the knowledge, skills and personal qualities that are needed to achieve success both now and in the future.

Moorside High School is an outstanding place to learn and to work but the best way to appreciate that fact is to come and see us in action. You are welcome to visit us at any time!
